Slovenia to Send Up to 4 Soldiers to Mali

Ljubljana, 1 February (STA) - The government decided at its session on Friday that Slovenia will take part in the EU training mission (EUTM) in Mali with up to four members of the Armed Forces.

According to a press release from the Defence Ministry, the cabinet tasked the defence and foreign ministries to carry out all the relevant procedures.

Slovenia will thus make a contribution to the 15-month mission, which EU foreign ministers confirmed in Brussels on 17 January and which is to be sent to the restive African state in March.
